Casoni, Darlinghurst

Every neighbourhood needs a local Italian joint. In Darlinghurst, they come with Negronis and Aperol Spritzes on tap. The former Foley Lane tapas bar shapeshifted into an Italian bar and restaurant over a year ago. It still has the same owners (Julian Marchetto and Nathan Moses). Show More Summary

Stanbuli, Enmore

Stanbuli is Sydney's newest Turkish eatery but don't expect the usual kebab and chips. The menu, by head chef Ibrahim Kasif (ex-Porteno), is all about offering mezze-style dishes - little plates of food you can snack on with a drinkShow More Summary

All you can eat Korean buffet at The Bab, Haymarket Chinatown

Sydney's cheapest all you can eat buffet? I think I've found it. You only need to hand over $13 for limitless lunchtime gluttony at new Korean restaurant, The Bab. That's a guaranteed bargain even if you don't skip breakfast or forget...Show More Summary

Tokyo: Eating fruit and cream sandwiches, chocolate potato chips with ice cream and... vocal cords

Japan. After four trips to this incredible country, I'm still itchy to return for more. It's not just the food - although that alone is worth the trek - but it's also everything else that makes up Japan and its culture: the singularShow More Summary

Bovine & Swine Barbecue Company, Enmore

Meat. If the words low and slow, barbecue and smoke just made your pupils dilate, you're in the right place. It's carnivore heaven at Bovine & Swine, where the air is heavy with the smell of smoked meat. American barbecue might be the latest trend all over Sydney, but this barbecue pit is no lightweight.

Hakodate: Fishing for squid and the hunt for sakura cherry blossoms

Hello 2016! They say that what you do on the first day sets the scene for the rest of year. So my first post for 2016 is about finishing things, concluding my Japan travel posts from last year. I'm hoping it'll also reflect a travelShow More Summary

2015: My stomach says thank you

2015. Let's call it the year of the soft serve. It definitely started that way, with a group challenge to eat as many unusual soft serves in Japan as we could (Personal highlights? The gold leaf, the sea urchin - yes really - and the 8 layer behemoth that needed two hands to hold upright). And really 2015 was a pretty epic year. Show More Summary

Beef tendon puffs, cuttlefish gnocchi and scarlet prawns: Stomachs Eleven Christmas dinner 2015

Friends. They're the people who make you laugh, are always ready to lend a hand, and - in my case in particular - never complain when you take a photo of their meal. In 2008, a motley group of my friends gathered for a home-cooked dinner. Show More Summary

Ciccone & Sons Gelateria, Redfern

These hot summer days are made for gelato. Gone are the days when you'd cool down with a Zooper Dooper or a Sunny Boy. Today's kids - both big and small - are more likely to be clamouring for the cold satisfaction of freshly churned gelato. Show More Summary

Continental Deli Bar Bistro, Newtown

Snacks or a full sit-down meal? Continental Deli and Bistro offers both, one of the hottest additions to Newtown's dining scene. It's the latest venture by Porteno's Elvis Abrahanowicz and Joe Valore, opening up just down the road from Black Star Pastry on Australia Street. Show More Summary

Annapurna Nepalese Restaurant, Homebush

We bet you’ve driven past Annapurna hundreds of times and never even realised it was there. It might be squeezed into a bleak stretch of Parramatta Road but this Nepalese restaurant is no secret to the Nepalese community who have it on speed dial for takeaway and catering. Show More Summary

Bennelong Restaurant, Sydney

Bennelong. It's the home of a $22 cheese truffle toastie, a $24 sausage roll and a $28 lamington. Say whaaat? But Sydneysiders can't get enough of it. It's been five months since Peter Gilmore's newest restaurant opened at the Sydney Opera House, taking up residence on the site formerly held by Guillaume Brahimi for ten years. Show More Summary

Doughnut Time at Central Park, Chippendale

It's Doughnut Time. After teasing Sydneysiders with their wares at Topshop stores, Doughnut Time has finally opened its first Sydney standalone shop in Chippendale. These are American-style yeast-raised donuts, soft and fluffy, that are hand-dipped in glazes that range from burnt butter to sour watermelon glaze. Show More Summary

Rootstock Sydney 2015

Pilu at Freshwater

There's no street number for Pilu at Freshwater. "On the beach" are the only directions you'll get beyond "Moore Road" on their website. It means we have no choice but to walk hopefuly toward the ocean, nodding at the passing surfies...Show More Summary

Via Napoli Pizzeria, Surry Hills

The savoury equivalent of birthday cake has to be pizza, right? Think about it. There's the ceremony of cutting, the sharing around of slices, and then the unstoppable grin that spreads from cheek to cheek. It's communal eating at its...Show More Summary

257 Home Kitchen, Eastwood

This is the first time we’ve heard of a Chinese restaurant enforcing two sittings at dinner time. We’re kinda glad they do because otherwise you’d never score a table - even with a booking. Locals have jammed this Eastwood newcomer,Show More Summary
